In-Studio Newborn Session | Baby Joel

Welcome Home, Joel!

This was such a beautiful in-studio newborn session with baby Joel and his adoring parents, Jessi and Walter. I met Joel’s mama and daddy when they modeled for a styled wedding shoot back in 2020. Such a stunning couple!

Jessi and Walter are the sweetest new parents. Baby Joel was so calm and happy with them throughout this session– the photo of him smiling in his sleep was completely heart melting! I just know Joel is going to have an incredible life with his wonderful parents, and I can’t wait to see him grow.

“A baby boy is a lifetime of wonder, hopes, and possibilities.”


All sessions with kDarling Photography are photographed on film. What does that mean for you? That means you’ll still receive your images via an online gallery. You’ll still be able to print where you wish or through my professional lab. What will change? I will get to slow down a bit at your sessions, allowing me to pay closer attention to details. We’ll get to know each other better, and we’ll have even more fun! And best yet – you’ll get your session back much sooner! Sound great – you’re excited? Me too!


Photographs tell the story of our families. The good ones, the bad ones, and the ones that take our breath away – they’re all part of our perfectly imperfect stories, and each one is beautiful in its own unique way. I have been telling stories of families just like yours in the central Illinois/Champaign-Urbana area since 2012 with newborn photography. Building lifelong relationships with my clients as their families grow, and telling their ever-changing story, is what makes my heart go pitter-patter. I would be honored to tell your family’s story..  To schedule your next session, please contact kDarling Photography by email or at 217.778.1325.
